Irish to host giants India in T20 matches

India to tour Ireland before England Indian Cricket Team faced Ireland only once in T20 Is

FOR THE FIRST time in 11 years, Ireland will play host to India with the two sides set to meet in a pair of T20 internationals this summer. The match was played during the 2009 ICC World T20.

The T20I matches will be held in Dublin on June 27 and June 29, the BCCI announced on Wednesday.

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has recently announced that the men in blue are all set to play over 80 worldwide matches as a part of their FTP for the period between 2019 to 2023.

The double-header will act as part of India's preparations for their three-match T20 series against England, which gets under way the following week. The ODI series will succeed the T20Is, and the Test series will round off the long tour.

Pak minor girl raped, murdered; protests break out
The 7-year-old girl was staying with her aunt while her parents were in Saudi Arabia to perform the umrah pilgrimage. According to reports , at least 12 children have been sexually assaulted and killed in the past two years in Kasur .

India has toured Ireland once before, way back in 2007, and had played one-off ODI in Belfast.

Ford added: "The matches will be played in front of a huge audience, both at the games and live on television". In the one T20I these two teams have played together, India came out on top, and won the match by eight wickets.

This time around the Irish side would fancy their chances in the shortest format considering the fact that they have improved significantly since the last time these two sides met for an worldwide fixture. They lost the first Test in Cape Town.
